The Double Image: Poems.
by Levertov, Denise.

Publisher Information:
The Cresset Press, London: 1946.

A Near Fine copy in a Very Good plus, unclipped dust jacket with shallow chipping to the head and heel of spine. This is Levertov's first book. The Double Image, was published just after the war in 1946. Although a few poems in this collection focus on the war, there is no direct evidence of the immediate events of the time. Instead, the work is very much in keeping with the British neo-romanticism of the 1940s, for it contains formal verse that some consider artificial and overly sentimental. In The Double Image, a recurrent sense of loss prompts Levertov to extemporize on death as not a threat but a rite to be accepted gladly and honored.
